ROSEMONT, ILL.–Audio and video recordings are banned at Mitt Romney fund-raisers.

GOP vice presidential nominee at a Sunday fundraiser in a Chicago suburb did not mention Romney’s controversial 47 percent video in his remarks at the reception, which a pool reporter covered.

Mitt Romney’s seemingly disparaging comments about 47 percent of voters was caught at a secretly recorded video at a Romney fund-raiser in Florida.

Outside the Ryan Sunday event at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare was a sign: “No video or audio recordings allowed . . . thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.”
